Open States' stated mission is to improve civic engagement.

To be true to that goal, we can not stand by and be silent when a large portion of Americans face systemic racism and other forms of oppression. That oppression has meant being excluded from civic participation at the ballot box, being called un-American for peaceful protests, and being denied justice for crimes committed against them.

Please consider giving to local causes that support racial justice in your area.

Abstract

Fire and police pension association - entry for social security employers - participation in defined benefit system. The board of the fire and police pension association (association) is authorized to allow an employer that covers employees under the federal "Social Security Act" whose duties are directly involved with the provision of law enforcement or fire protection (employer) and that is eligible to participate in the social security supplemental plan established by the association to alternatively elect to participate in one or more of the defined benefit plans administered by the association with full benefits and unreduced contribution rates. An employer that elects to affiliate with the association to participate in a defined benefit plan is required to make the election through the governing board of the local government or county. An application for coverage by the association is required to be approved by at least 65% of all active members employed by the employer who vote in the election proposing coverage. The board of the association is authorized to adopt rules to allow an employee of the affiliating employer to elect to remain in a predecessor plan and not have coverage by the association. All active employees at the time of affiliation with the association, with the exception of employees who elect to remain in a predecessor plan, and all employees who are hired after affiliation will become participants in the association and such participation cannot be revoked.
